Inlet Tee with Shelf Technology
The United Conveyor Corporation (UCC) patented Inlet Tee with SHELF™ Technology prevents line plugging and increases conveying capacity in bed ash and other applications conveying “hard to fluidize” material. A plate in the tee acts as a shelf to control material dropped into the conveying line from the feeder above. Air flow is reduced on top of the shelf due to the presence of material and hence more air flows underneath the shelf, raising the material pickup velocity. The result is smooth conveying with a reduction in pressure spikes and lower energy consumption.
